9:08 pm
and everywhere to come in help us. gerri: we talked a little bit about that last night, 53 house people coming -- ,000 people coming in to assist wh helping get lights back on.3 we were just talking about lower nhattan, we heard mayor say lower manhattan might get lights on saturday, it is -- is -- are you going to able to make good on that? >> we're doing our best, we can't put it on a time frame right now, this is so complicated. we had everything hit us, the wind, and extensive amount of rain, surging floods, so, you basically, have hit it by everything but the locust i think. we at water is a major problem in lower manhattan. we have to get the water pumped out of under ground systems. we just got off of a phone call with secretary chu and people from the white house, and they are coming in to help.
9:09 pm
but we have a major job to get into that under ground equipment to kind of clean it up to dry it up on, and to get it back up, so it's hard to make a predict. gerri: how many weeks? that sounds like weeks and weeks? >> it could be long time, and we're trying to do everything we can to make it faster. again, you know the other job is erhead lines, they are outside of the city. that is a huge job as well. gerri: that is what is wrong in my neighborhood. i want to bring in daniel squadron, democratic new york state senor, his district lower manhattan, carroll gardens brook brookin, he is joining me by phone. thank you, let's start with state of play in your district, what are your constituents telling you? how are basic services?

9:11 pm
some ways, it is different here in new york, manhattan, brooklyn, southern tip of new york, there are so many people concentrated hire, and people are on top of each other, if the services are not there, it is more difficult. tom to you, spotty service, are other service problems hindering what you are doing? >> well, again, u.s. electric system is most reliable electric system in the world. but with a storm of a millennium, that has never been seen before that knocks out power to over 8 million people, and then brings in water and wind, it is a very difficult tough job. it does rely on a lot of different people working together. we're working in new york with mayor, and governor, and others to bring in every resource we can to get water pumped out to get on with the job of trying to restore electricity. but it is -- it is a huge job.
9:12 pm
i understand people's frustration,veryone depends on electricity, it affects every part of our lives, we understand how important it is for customers to have it. gerri: and dan, i think their frustration goes beyond, that we're looking at pictures of houses burning. some situation may not in your district that are dire, really, and truly dire, you know, here in new york city we're not used to this, this happens elsewhere, this is a new experience for us, a lot going on downtown near the new york stock exchange at crossroads, of the capitalism really. how are you coping? and do you think that new yorkers will hold up here? >> well, certainly new yorkers will hold up. we have in lower manhattan we held up, came back stronger after unprecedented attack on our nation, we'll come back from
9:13 pm
this too. as someone who represents, the big part of the community, to watch wats flood in to brooklyn abou battery tunnel or anything into residential buildings, if is painful. and scary. and there is no question about that but, in new york, we know how to handle it. we stick together. people have been supportive of each other. i was talking with folks that live on 11th floor of a building, they were crying water up and down all day, they were not worried about themselves but their 87-year-old neighbor with diabetes. what to do about her. that says it all. gerri: that is commendable. daniel and tom thank you. thank you for the information, and for insight, we really appreciate your time. >> my pleasure. >> thank you. >> thank you. gerri: still ahead tonight, for homeowners, affected by

9:34 pm
out and provide tax benefits for businesses that have been affected by the disaster. historically we have not seen that, but it is being discussed. gerri: free legal services to be available from fema. is that typical? >> it is. the federal government reaches out and tries to do what i can't help small businesses. that is available from the government, where you can get those types of services. gerri: the cdc will have some clean-up tips. is that on their website. >> absolutely. you can go to cdc and get those helpful tips as well. gerri: i know people tonight are sitting at home talking about what can i do, what can i do right now to help get this back up and running? uld you say to people who are looking for that disaster plan? >> you need to assess the damage, assess the damage i like to your existing business, ut project going forward with this will do to your local economy, particularly if you have a small business. forecast cash flows. affect consumers in your area if your business to business type

9:36 pm
gerri: hurricanes in the minimum sum the campaign trail with the contenders had six days left to plead their case. both kendis are putting the gloves back on. medtronic going full force and the swing state of florida today while president obama holds off until tomorrow. he is meeting with the jersey governor chris christie to tour the damage such in the wake of the storm. the columnist of the national -- national review and executive director of public knows. i'm going to start with you. i watched the press conference with chris christie and the president. let me tell you, is chris christie the governor who was supporting mitt romney or not? , a little confused. >> well, remember that he is running for reelection in 2013 in new jersey, which has not voted for republican for president in over 20 years. so it's good politics for him, and, frankly, so far he is very pleased with of the federal government has been responding to his requests for aid and
9:37 pm
assistance. 62 percent of new jersey, i lived in new jery, is without power. that is a lot of angry potential voters if he does not get something done. so i think he is putting policy and his own politics temporarily ahead of mitt romney's. gerri: fascinating to watch, and i could not help but think maybe romney will have some kind of response down the line to governor christie. to you. you said that politicking never really ended. the conventional restaurant is that all politics ceased during the storm. you said, no. >> it didn't really. you had romney having events collecting, donated goods for those hurricane victims. that is politicking. he is showing a fall faced effort to help victims in the only way that he can't. president obama actually get there as president doing what presidents do, and that is aide with resources during times like this. so i don't think the politicking release stocks.
9:38 pm
you had the obama administration , his campaign, his surrogates. this election did not stop. down and not to, but it did not stop. gerri: which brings up the question, who gets the momentum now? coming into this event, this massive storm that has really paralyze this region, romney had the momentum. by friday, saturday who will have the big mark? >> i don't think this changes the momentum. it freezes it. a fourth of the country, everyone is preoccupied with there daily lives. nothing is changed in the fundamental dynamics of this race. put it out. the president of the united states is tied with romney 46 test 46. that is a dangerous number for the incumbent more than romney because if an incumbent is below 50% traditionally almost everyone who is not for him is either going to stay hoe of four for the challenger. obama at 46% shows he is
9:39 pm
slipping into underdog status as we spak. gerri: the me show you another, as long as you're talking polls, we have one, the national average. and obama is at 47%. i did he'd. gretchen, you know, here is what i don't understand. i thought that people made up their mind as the campaign progressed, but it seems that most people, like you, who are expert watchers of this campaign say lots of people change their mind right up to voting day. >> to we had seen that in the past. we have had some people who did not even make up their minds until election day. i think this eltion, you have seen a lot of people make up their minds early this election will come down to the few people who make up their minds over the course of the past weekend coming into the next few days. president obama has done with this hurricane is acted presidential, taking care of business. people don't look at one event but past history and the past
9:40 pm
four years. he has not always displayed that same type. he is not even saving as from the fiscal cliff reroute the falloff of the we had been heading toward for the past 11 months. gerri: we have to go, but all read the results of your pole. what or who is to blame for the federal debt? 79 percent of people responding say registered voters responded your poll said the government overspending. you have to leave it there. thanks for coming on. always a pleasure. both of you want. hope both of your families receive tonight. thank you. >> thank you. gerri: still to come, financial advisers are telling their clients about the last two days and what to expect better in the week. with justice to go before the election, and focus in the campaign. two is telling the truthabout plans to move to china? details next.
9:41 pm
9:42 pm
9:43 pm
9:44 pm
gerri: tonight, growing concerns that many u.s. manufacturing jobs are at stake. take a look at this romney campaign ad slamming president obama. >> obama took a gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who were going to build jeeps and china. mitt romney will fight for every american job.
9:45 pm
gerri: and the left out swinging today claiming the ad is inaccurate, including joe biden who called it flagrantly dishonest. my next guest says romney has it right. here to explain, associate fellow for the national legal and policy center. great to have you back. always a pasure to have you on the show. this all came out of a report in bloomberg. let me read you what the road and read your response. european sales, the ceos, sergio marchini, considering building chrysler models in italy, including jeeps, for export to north america. now, is that true or is that false? >> that is absolutely true, and prior to that there was a bloomberg report that did say that the yacht was going to be building jeeps in china, possibly old jeeps, so that is where the governor romney got that information. now, there was one slight inaccuracies under the romney
9:46 pm
and where he said the obama administration sold chrysler to the italians. he didn't. he gave it to them. the only thing they paid up front was some technology they transferred. did not even pay any money for it. gerri: you're saying possibly the ad is to kind. >> yes. it is. it is true that china part of it is true. what was a little unclear was originally the bloomberg article said that they might build of jeeps in china. that doesn't appear to be true. it will build some for the chinese market, but also, there is still a risk that there will export these things. the italian story is a little more concerning because the need to get some cars built in factories that are underutilized in italy. during the conference call, the ceo for fiat made clear that they want to be building jeeps in italy. now, this story also --
9:47 pm
gerri: come on. i hear you say that, and as an american i think a much use in italy. are we going to move our production? and me, that makes the sense to me. and are these even going toobe sold in the us.? >> they are saying that they want to export them. in fact, negotiating with the italians to give tax rebates on the exports to help them export them to america. now, you know, they're going to say, yes, but you will still be it -- build jeeps and chrysler's this is new. it will be sold in europe, but also exported here. just because it's a new jeep people will be apologists and say, oh, well, that's a new one. they don't have to build the one here. that's a new vehicle. they can build that in italy. these are potential jobs lost. the car could have been built here. the car could have been built here and exported instead of built in italy and exported year. absolutely truthful ad by
9:48 pm
romney. and it's very, very clear from the bloomberg article and the conference call. another important thing on that conference call that i noted in rabat on the mlb pc, the benchmark to allosaurs chrysler's in jeep should be a savings of at least $1. and chrysler should payto produce these cars elsewhere if this savings are at least $1. it is clear they are considering this. for now it is just a few cars. you know, what happens is we gave an american company to the italians. we have to expect that fiat has an obligation and loyalty to its own citizens, to its investors, and if they want to protect their manufacturing. gerri: we have to keep jobs in this country. you know, that's my bottom line. if you want to save your dollar, go savet somewhere else. thanks for coming in.

>> maybe you like the movie last month of the month before that of a lot of for that of the month before hat of a model for at. this is been a pretty darn good year for people to say i'm happy any time the market goes down, well, get a grip. the market goes up and down. it's been going up an awfulot of the past four years. gerri: i like that vote of confidence. less talk about something very real that people are facing right now. maybe you're not thinking about your portfolio. in your thinking about the safety of your home and family. a lot of people have had losse what kind of financial advice would you give people who are concerned about the fundamentals right now. >> well, it will be a lot better if people prepared in advance. ironically or may be politically we have an article in a newsletter in october saying how to prepare for the next disaster. i did realize it would come this best. you need to make sure you have proper insurance protection. a lot of people don't realize that floods are not covered by most homeowners policies. you need to separately insured
